i fear to speak because i’m guilty; and out to save myself
i try to hide, but i hear you stalking outside, peering in on me
through this painful breach, overrun by intimacy and vulnerability
your affection, insinuations, ah-oh-oh-oh-oh....
or am i free? am i free? my truth is much worse than you see 
floating free, i fail to live up to your dream

there was a time when I was a man who held out for purity
with one hand towards faith, and a heart with grace, and a hope for the good in everyone
too often i sinned, too often i failed, too often i frustrated your purpose
overflowed with shame at my flaws untamed -- i saw the best in you, you saw the worst of me
floating free, i fail to live up to your dream

sensuality & brutality
morality & duality
